Soak up the best of your outdoor area in style
There’s nothing better than coming home to an outdoor oasis and one which features a welcoming bathtub.
Gaining popularity around Queensland homes, outdoor bathing allows you to escape the heat and provides the chance to create the perfect summer haven, right in the comfort of your own home.
The installation of indoor bathtubs is determined by your bathroom’s dimensions and space, however outdoor baths are less limited and can create a luxurious statement. Free-standing baths give you the opportunity to create a real spa-like haven, adding in personal touches to create an area fit for your needs.
Victoria + Albert Baths marketing director Jonathan Carter said installing a free-standing bath outside could instantly create a sense of indulgence in your own backyard and was the perfect way to pamper yourself during the hot summer season.
“Whether your outdoor alfresco area is inspired by a tropical day-spa or a modern luxurious hotel, you can easily immerse yourself in a cool tub and enjoy the outdoors, even in the Australian heat,” Mr Carter said.
Free-standing baths are a great alternative to a pool if your backyard has limited space.
Mr Carter said surrounding the bath with plants and natural materials created the feeling of a secluded haven.
“Victoria + Albert’s free-standing baths are made of a unique material called quarrycast – a composite of volcanic limestone and resins”, he said.
“They’re ideal for outdoor installations – not only are they UV resistant, meaning they won’t go yellow in the sun, but the material is resistant to thermal shock cycles, which means there’s no risk of cracking between the seasons.”
Victoria + Albert products are available in showrooms at Bowen Hills, Woolloongabba and Bardon.
